  1. pmc Rapid evolution in response to introduced predators II: the contribution of adaptive plasticity
    Leigh C Latta
    Department of Biology, 5305 Old Main Hill Road, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 7:21. 2007
    ..The experiment allowed us to assess the degree of population differentiation due to fish predation and examine the contribution of adaptive plasticity in the response to predator introduction...
  2. pmc Rapid evolution in response to introduced predators I: rates and patterns of morphological and life-history trait divergence
    Debra L Fisk
    Department of Biology, 5305 Old Main Hill Road, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 7:22. 2007
    ..We compared morphological and life-history traits in populations of Daphnia with a known history of introduced salmonids and populations that have no history of salmonid introductions...
  3. pmc Genomic background and generation time influence deleterious mutation rates in Daphnia
    Leigh C Latta
    Department of Biology, Reed College, Portland, OR 97202, USA
    Genetics 193:539-44. 2013
    ..These results suggest that differences in genetic architecture among populations and species may be explained in part by demographic features that significantly influence generation time and therefore the rate of mutation...
  4. pmc Functional biogeography as evidence of gene transfer in hypersaline microbial communities
    J Jacob Parnell
    Center for Integrated BioSystems, Utah State University, Logan, Utah, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 5:e12919. 2010
    ..We hypothesize that in spite of the barrier to phylogenetic dispersal, functional characteristics--in the form of HGT--expand beyond phylogenetic limitations due to selective pressure...
